that will be called into question. what is france's position? i don't think it's very far from the aspirations of the european parliament. compromise is possible. but it must be reasonable. and, therefore, we must talk reason to those who want to make cuts from europe's budget beyond what we found acceptable. there's no point in negotiating an agreement between heads of state and government if it is not voted to buy europe assembly. everyone can understand the logic of the communities institutions, and, therefore, members of parliament and heads of state of government with the commission, we must be clear-sighted and we must be responsible. that's the meaning of france's position going into these negotiations. which must enable europe to have a framework for its action over seven years. we've got to show that we're capable of taking decisions together, heads of state and government, members of the european parliament. our credibility is at stake here. not our financial credibility but our political credibility. and apart from these budget choices, it's a concept of europe that is under debate.
and architecture were pilgrimage and the monastic movement. the romanesque church here at vezelay in france embodies both-- benedictine monastery and starting point on the pilgrimage route to santiago in spain. the story of vezelay echoes the story of europe during the crucial years of transition between the 9th and 12th centuries. it was founded in the 860s in the great cultural and artistic revival of the french emperor charlemagne. vikings burned it in the violent 9th and 10th centuries. western europe was assailed on every side by slavs, magyars, saracens, and vikings. many people thought that christian civilization itself might not pull through. in response, powerful dynasties built great strings of fortresses in which their beleaguered populations could shelter. in the 1100s, europe turned the corner suddenly, as if the passing of the millennium was the release. we see a dramatic revival in the use of monumental sculpture and large-scale architecture such as had only been glimpsed in the previous centuries. the cult of saints and the passion for pilgrimage to their shrines were domina

access to credit and in france, there's the impression that the country goes the wrong way on the supply and reform. and that is dampening growth expectations in france. that has negative consequences on their budget situation. so i think that is important and could lead to a market reaction. but i think it is not really the driving force for the trend.the the driving force for the trend is what is happening in japan. we as european investors need to understand. and the other driving force is that definitely on growth and political stability in europe. >> hans, i also wonder, given the weakness that you're talking about with france, you saw the weakness in the flash pmis yesterday and yet the german figures come out strong. just to recap, we're showing the greatest increase since july 2010. manufacturers are considerably more optimistic. all of this coming off a really negative period of growth for germany, but how much more complicated does european policy making come if germany and france continue to die verge here? >> that is exactly the point. why we think there is a long-term outloo

and in the united kingdom france and america. it has continued to slide. what's interesting is that since then the west has led what is called the local fertility fund and since then you have seen all the other countries began to follow them. right now 97% of the world population lives in a country where the fertility rate is declining. it happened in south america as i said in an africa europe and asia and what is really striking and what people don't typically pay attention to is that while in many parts of the world the actual fertility rate is a little bit higher than it is here in america the rate of decline is generally steeper and so if you look down in mexico and central america and south america while many of those countries find fertility rate slightly above what we have their rate of decline is sleep -- steeper said he can't just look at the numbers you have today. we can't just look at the snapshot. we have to look at the trends and watch the slope of that curve to see where we will be in another 20 years. >> host: are there certain groups here in the united states or other co

in france they do. because they are chosen by the political system. not by local candidates and being mayor is part of a political career. but in most places are they are elected they don't. the starting point is that mayors are among the most pragmatic problem solving politician the world has ever seen. that's because their job is specific. if you become -- you have go the to achieve world trade regulation. you have to top the taliban and deal with chaos in libya and mali. you have to ban guns across the country or not. saling up the board ears and fig -- those vast large scale problems lend themselves to ed yolings. no government, big government, self-government. when you're mayor, you have sircht set -- sircht set of task. you better get the snow off the road when it snows. mayor lindsay, some of you may recall in 1960 when failed to plow. almost lost his job. because he didn't plow the streets. mayor teddy, pragmatic mayor of jury -- was known as a pragmatist and famous for having said he was in a meeting with rabbi and christians who were arguing about access to the holy site. he fina
